Facts sought on why girl, 4, tested positive for cocaine

1/30/2004

TROY, NY (AP) - Police here want to know why a 4-year-old girl tested positive for cocaine.
A test showed the drug in the urine of the preschooler after her teacher became suspicious when she saw the girl and her Head Start classmates playing with small balloons, police said.

The children behaved strangely when asked who brought the balloons to class, according to police. Since the children touched the balloons with their mouths, the teacher called in a health monitor, who then noticed that the girl's vital signs were elevated.

The girl and four other preschoolers who handled the balloons were taken to a hospital for drug tests. Police said that the school notified the parents immediately and that the parents gave hospital workers permission to test their children.

Only the 4-year-old girl's test came back positive, police said.

Tests on the balloons showed that they were not tainted with cocaine, but the state crime lab is double-checking to ensure that those results are correct.

Police said the girl's relatives have cooperated during interviews and have submitted to drug tests.



Weird... erm.. anyhow, discuss this odd incident here...

Express your opinions as to where cociane came from...

BTW: This is true. It was in my local paper today.

Er... so the cocaine was on the balloons or what? o_O Whatever the case, that's just awful that someone so young should be exposed to drugs such as that. >_<;;

:\ Wouldn't it suck to be 4 years old and a coke addict?

Maybe they ate some poppy seeds before the test.. But that would only show positive for opium.
But why did have balloons with them? ...hmm..

I find it very wiered that a 4 year old was exposed to drugs...
Maybe some one gave the ballons to them but there wasn't that much cocaine on them and that girl got the full blast of it...
But I reckon it's just horrific what people do to those that are so innocent...

One dose shouldnt make her an addict, but then again shes so tiny it might have a more dramatic effect. At any rate, its not like she can go on the street and get more easily, so she should break any cravings. Itd be much harder on her if she was like 12 or 13 I think. Shed be more aware of the effects and might even seek out more.

*thinks that the immune system for a 4 year old will be a lot weaker... she maybe addicted to it easily*

*wonders from who or how does she get it...*

Yea but then again Kairi is right, he wouldn't know to search for more. Then again, I did some pretty bad things when I was 4 too so may-be.

Even if she found more some how I doubt she'd know what it is and maybe in time she'll just forget about it over time and over come her addiction if she has one...

*actually that isn't a hard task... considering Frosty knew how to do something bad already when he's 4*

*whoever supplied her the drugs in the first place *** give her some more... so that's a possible source already*

I think the only bad thing I learned when I was four years old was how to turn on and use a NES:P. Boy, did that change my life, lol.

Oh! I remember what I did when I was 4! I learned to draw pictures of me doing murderous things to my enemies. And yes I had enemies when I was 4.
Maybe some one should make a thread for what you did when you where young...

Yamichu's right, we should make a thread like that, because we are getting off-topic. Think before you post, "Does this really relate to the topic?" and "Is this post nessesary?"

or coke...as it's called in duh hood...

Perhaps the cocaine was inside the baloon and she inhaled it. Or her parents do the stuff and she got some on her...wierd

BOO ya!

Ah, that's sad. =\ Well, I want to hear what the results say... I'm suspicious if there was some inside of the balloons. Some idiot could've deliberately put some inside of them, and then given them to the children.
